clinton's rise to power. when you look at bill clinton coming to power after three disastrous elections where the democratic party was viewed as unelectable by a lot of the country, it was fueled by ideas, by platform, by a vision of where to lead to reinvent the party. and you see the great deficit in those remarks by the speaker that the congressional wing of the republican party has in the eyes of the american people, absolutely bereft of ideas. i'm not a fan of the affordable care act, but my party has no solutions to deal with what's a real issue. no working person in this country, for example, should lose their house, go bankrupt, because their kid breaks their leg or their spouse gets leukemia, so republicans, who were once the party of ideas, during the regan era, through the 1990s along with president clinton, we have collapsed as far as our ability to be policy entrepreneurs. that's the great challenge if we're to be successful in 2016, to have candidates to break away, put forward ideas about economic growth, health care, and ideas that americans are focused on. >> jonathan,

sick for almost a year. mandela was the first african president-elected. news of his death came from current president jacob zuma. >> our nation has lost its greatest son. our people have lost a father. >> reporter: nelson mandela was a statesman and man of the people. he spent 27 years in prison for fighting apartide and was celebrated when he walked free with his then wife. mandela was already a hero by then. an international symbol of the fight against injustice. but mandela never expressed bitterness about his time behind bars. instead he called for reconciliation and forgiveness. four years after his release he was elected president. he also won the noble peace prize along with the man who freed him, f.w.declark. >>> mandela lived thousands of miles away but had a profound connection to a the bay area. mandela is being remembered and honored tonight. christien kafton has the story. >> reporter: it's clear what an influence nelson mandela had here. he influenced people here and in south africa and around the world to make the place they live better. before his relief from prison
elected to the baseball hall of fame along with joe torre and bobby cox. >> awesome. >> it just came in. sal, i know you are aware of that. but you know about our traffic mess on highway 4. >> brilliantly said. i was watching both. i have good news on highway 4. highway 4, the lanes have opened. however, the backup here live from newschopper2 is just ridiculous. it is backed up all the way to antioch and then people say that's normal. this is not normal. this is much busier than it normally is. so you get on the road even all of the lanes are opened, you will be in traffic. you should probably double your commute time. normally it takes you about maybe 40 minutes to get through this. today it will take you more than an hour and i'm just -- i'm trying to be conservative here. hopefully i will be a little bit wrong on the plus side. maybe it won't take you that long. but i'm not that optimistic. i've been doing this a long time. i have to tell you, traffic is very slow. let's take a look at the bay bridge toll plaza. this is a 20 to 25-minute delay. no problems getting onto the upper deck
year's election. i don't think it is going to last for 50 weeks, but this is what they put all of their emphasis on, and we're just going to hear more and more of them. but as you say, they sort of get further and further from any reality. >> the crucial test on the political consequences are whether they do make that jump. when you talk about the planned cancellation stories, which when you scratch the surface of a lot of them were way less than they appeared. we're talking about people who qualified for subsidies, and were not reported for qualifying for subsidies, those really did have an impact. but i think the mainstream media that has been burned have gotten more skeptical. >> the cancellation stories, for a week there they were everywhere. and i think a vast majority of americans thought millions of people just lost their health insurance. they got a cancellation notice inviting them to join another plan that may cost them less. so that was a main stream media problem, and hopefully they got burned so they will sort of leave these other stories alone. but fox will push t
in front of your mind about nelson mandela. the 1994 election. south africa's first, is just stu pendous. it won't for two days and they had to call for helicopters and cargo planes and it was the most extraordinary thing. i think what his old comrade in arms and as we know, the spokesman for the presidency said, he stamped his authority. even on prison. he earned the respect and quietly demanded the respect and got it of his prison warders. and max said this is a man who proved that simply by being so dignified forced even the adversary to respect him. and i think that is just so tremendous. how he did that. we talk about hill as if he was an angel. he was a man with a core of steel. and he was able to be that and also to be so incredibly human and fun. all the pictures you see, he is smiling and dancing. a most remarkable combination. >> you met with him many times. one of the thing that i read this evening, that i thought was so fascinating was somebody talking about mandela. the cunning politician. obviously rerevere him for his accomplishments but he said that he wielded his halo as
republicans that are -- >> right. >> -- holding this up. >> who got 3 million less votes in the last election. >> and remember, as you pointed out, over a majority of republicans actually support an increase in the minimum wage. so there is overwhelming consensus among the american p ub on this issue. >> there's dual tracks here. there's a kind of inside strategy with the progressive caucus pushing for this and even kind of main street democrats. then you've got this fight for 15. these are the fast food worker strikes. there was the biggest yet yesterday. they've been spreading. how do you think those two are interacting with each other? >> i think there are a couple things going on. social movements and protests in disruption is always great at getting issues on the national political agenda that normal politics doesn't allow. so if anything, we're having a sustained discussion about income inequality -- >> it's on every cable news network, it's on cnbc. >> even fox. it's everywhere. so one, we're talking about it, and there's legislation. but two, we are seeing actual legislative victories
